I am not a doctor; just a mama basing this information off my own experiences as a mother, athlete, and prior research. Please consult your doctor or midwife before proceeding with any of the following information!

Pregnancy can very much be a challenging time for our bodies, as they go through so much change in a short period of time. I remember, being pregnant with my son, hadn’t told anyone the “big news” yet because I wasn’t showing, then all of a sudden, BAM…there was actually a human in there! It’s crazy how fast the change happens and its no wonder why our bodies tend to experience aches and pains during this time. 

I have some good news for my mama-to-be reading this, though; there actually are actions you can take to help relieve these aches from your body!

One, very common ache that many pregnant mamas experience is pain in their lower back. While you may or may not have started your pregnancy with a strong back and core, the constant forward-weight that increases while Baby grows, may likely be leading to a bit of pain in your lower back. 

The following exercises are ones that are proven to help relieve that pain during pregnancy and I am so excited to show them to you. All you are going to need is a swiss ball and your amazing, pregnant self!

Now, before trying these exercises, as stated above in the disclaimer, it is important that you check with your doctor or midwife. Pregnancy is not a limiting time, but an important time to have knowledge over both your’s and your baby’s health.
